But it’s all about timing. So the opening of Shootout at Lokhandwala saw some rather tactfully planned appearances.
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif came in first, while Abhishek Bachchan without his better half chose to make a late entry and the Amitabh Bachchan decided to skip it all together.
“It’s a very nice film and everyone’s done great work in it. It’s a great storyline,” said actor Suniel Shetty.
The multi-starrer thriller by Apurva Lakhia, is based on the real-life encounter between the Mumbai cops and the underworld in 1991.
“I think by the time everyone finishes watching it I would have left because I’m so nervous right now and very excited,” said actor Tusshar Kapoor.
This being Bollywood’s big release this week, the celebrations were on an equally high note.
“I’m scared because it’s the first time I have seen so many people together at the same place,” said actress Dia Mirza.
So will Shootout at Lokhandwala make just as much noise at the box office? We’ll just have to wait and watch.
